    Hiya - which accessory point is suitable to plug in a portable tyre inflator - I am guessing the one under the seat ?

    According to my owners manual the 12V sockets are rated to max 9 amps if foglights not fitted. This drops to 5 amps with foglights. Any load greater than that will blow the fuse it says. It would seem both sockets and foglights are on the same fuse from the way it's worded.

    Pumps generally seem to draw around 10 amps so maybe better to hook up direct to battery.


    Cheers

    I have plugged the tire inflator into a cigarette type adaptor in the Bmw type 12v.  I have to had any issues.  Its not something I do regularly (usually plug it into the socket inside the car trunk).

    Pumps should be connected directly to the battery using a fused connection. Most people use the same SAE lead for a battery tender.

    Something like this will work. https://www.amazon.com/YETOR-Protection-Disconnect-Extension-Motorcycle/dp/B07PPN8PJC/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=sae+battery+connector&qid=1629689430&sr=8-3

    Iíve used the Airman pump running from the Din socket on the dash the past four years. Absolutely no problem whatsoever.
